Does your community feel like a small world?
Do your community members feel connected to each other? Are they feeling they belong to your community? People renew their membership because of the relationship they have with other members. Amazing content and wonderful events aren't enough to create a valuable community. Join my masterclass and learn ways to evaluate your community, and increase your members' sense of belonging.
Learn a new way to evaluate your community
In the masterclass you will learn the principles of network thinking, how to interpret a network map and three key network metrics. You will not learn graph theory, the math used in network analysis, or how to run a network analysis.
Lost in the Woods
It looks like everyone knows what to do except for you. Managing relationships is hard. You ask yourself: - Who is the most influential person on the team? - Who is the trouble maker? - Who can I rely on? - What conflicts happened in the past? - What if I screw up?
Discovery & Pattern Detection
You talk with your team,, learn about their aspirations, and what helps them to do their job. You observe interactions between team members, who is talking with whom and who is avoiding whom.
Map the Team
You use your conversations to create a picture of your team. You create a network map of the team to visualize how information is distributed and where power lies.
Engaging with key players
Your network map helped you identify key players. You talk with the most influential person to build a trusting and strong relationship. You reward and empower those who bridge silos, acknowledging their efforts. You talk with those who aren't well integrated in the team to see what they need.
The community manager
Are members' needs met?
You wonder if the community is successful? People sign up and participate a bit, but is this enough? You ask yourself: - Who is the driving force in the community? - What activities and topics are on people's mind? - What subgroups are there? - Who are the key champions or ambassadors?
Collecting data and looking for patterns
You talk with community members. You look at the data. You collect data about number of posts and who replies to them.
